Description of Impact of Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome, Preterm Birth, and Vision Loss on Development
This study compared the developmental outcomes of twin boys (one who is blind and one who is sighted) who were born prematurely and diagnosed with twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) at age 24 months. The results indicate a disparity in the developmental outcomes of the twins. Although the medical risk factors that are associated with TTTS and preterm births, as well as vision loss, appear to have a negative impact on developmental outcomes, it is impossible to determine the degree to which any factor is responsible for this result.
